    U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump came under fire from his rivals on Thursday for saying Muslims hate the United States,

    The world need only understand. Trump, his Neo Nazi, American Nazi Party, Ku Klux Klan and Holocaust Deniers are just trying to get the prejudice and racial hatred "out there" to help America become Great Again!

    This racist jackass hasn't a flying clue of just how incredibly destructive his bigotry is. In ANY other context Donald J. Trump would be prosecuted for "Hate Crimes".

    “We have a serious problem of hate. There is tremendous hate,” Trump said.

    The serious problem with hate is what Donald J. Trump has promoted as his central theme, his endorsement and intention to deceive his idiot followers from the Klan to the American Nazi Party and beyond.

    Trump is nothing but a fraud huckster in the old school pattern of a condescending bigot who has no interest in who he harms, who pays for his racism and could not care less about America, Americans or anything but his own wealth.

    “Anyone out there that has the uniform of the United States on and is willing to die for this country is someone that loves America,”

    Not really. Some foreign nationals sign up just to get their foot-in-the-door and get US citizenship + the college money. This doesn't mean they love america. It just means they've taken an oath, swear allegiance to.

    Which, by very fact that he may just become the next president of the US, shows how mind-blowingly stupid a huge percentage of the American voters are.

    I feel you. When Obama defeated McCain / S. Palin, I thought the same about that "mind-blowingly stupid huge %of American voters. Guess you just gota roll with the punches . . . like that heckler at the recent Trump rally.

    “Trump insisted he would impose a tariff, as high as 45 percent, on some imports from countries like China.

    Ha. Good luck with that. Here's how it would go down:

    China would appeal to the World Trade Organization, which rule the tax invalid.

    Trump would then either have to back down (losing lots of face in the process) or defy the WTO, threatening the global trade regime.

    China would meanwhile retaliate, closing their market to US goods.

    Prices in the US would soar.

    America would lose their preeminent position in future trade negotiations.

    Jobs still wouldn't come back to the US - they'd go to Mexico.

    You'd think a businessman would understand this. Either he's more foolish than he looks (and that's saying a lot) or he's pandering to those who think America can wave a magic wand to solve its trade problems. Fortunately, he'll never win, so we'll probably never need to find out.

    Trump got a fresh injection of campaign momentum on Thursday with plans by rival Ben Carson, who is popular with conservatives, to endorse him.

    “People will buy products from here,” Trump said. “We’ll build our factories here and we’ll make our own products.”

    Former Late Show host David Letterman brought out a number of buttoned shirts and slick ties from the Trump brand clothing line for Macy's in a 2011 interview.

    Letterman pointed out that his ties and shirts were made in China, according to the label.

    Trump is playing the America Idiot for the fool Trump always thought they were. A bunch of dumb hicks who haven't the education, intelligence, interest, capacity for complex thought or tolerance for complex sentence structure.

    Four years ago Trump didn't give a wide greasy stain about Americans or their jobs. Now he's Bigot in Chief? The Great Job Creator?

    How stupid is a Trump racist? Stupid enough to beat up someone in front of the cameras and believe Trump is suddenly a job creator. That's more than stupid, that's George W, Bush "greeted as liberators" stupid.

    And who is Trump taunting? The global identity and sacred faith of all Muslims.

    Another wise move from the GOP/Tea. Is China gonna pay for Trump's war too?

    Gonna be a long sweaty summer for Trump and his gang. Here's what is in the works so far:

    Testifying in lawsuits over the collapse of Trump University.

    Testifying at the court martial of the AWOL soldier from Idaho to explain why he used his execution as campaign fodder and diminishing his chance for a fair trial.

    Testifying at the 78 year old's assault and battery trial to explain why he openly encourages attacking peaceful protesters and why he stated he will pay the legal bills of anybody who assaults another audience member.

    Testifying at his campaign manager's assault trial against the Breitbart reporter whose bruises were shown on national TV today.

    (Quick note: tripped up by the mote, as in dust mote. The actual reference is 'moot', just like the invaders of Spain, the Moops. It's always something and Trump probably got the idea from George Costanza.)

    And now back to our show: "Trump said he would consider between 20,000 to 30,000 U.S. troops on the ground in the region to help defeat Islamic State, saying he would complete the mission quickly and bring them home to focus on rebuilding the United States."

    Donald J. Trump has an interesting small Government solution. 30,000 pop over to Iraq/Syria with the Russians and "bang-bang yer dead ISIS" and home again home again jiggity jig building the Trump wall of doom?

    Can Trump with his "pretend I'm a President" nonsense really believe he'll rid a guerrilla force in a land where America just destroyed millions of lives, killing 242,000 and simply march in and march back home again?

    How many idiots does it take to believe Trump's uninformed, ill-researched, un-consulted with military experts promises of victory? All of them.

    Obviously, Trump hasn't any idea of the U.S. Congress' responsibility in his imaginary tale of Palin-esque stupidity. And Trump hasn't any idea of who's Mom, Dad, Son and Daughter he plans to send to die in the desert.

    What's the American word for fraud? Trump?

    The most dangerous thing about Donald J. Trump is he has nothing to lose.

    Four years after becoming Bigot in Chief of Reckless Wars Trump waves bye-bye, leaves the bill for his disaster and laughs all the way to the bank.

    Who does that remind Americans of?

    It should sound very familiar.

    Also, Trump can run and bet anyway he wishes in side deals invisible to the American Public, cash in as his American Casino fails and still sell sea shells by the seashore.

    Ask Atlantic City, New Jersey how that worked out.

    Hey, no one is judging Trump. When you have a great con run the table fold the hand and tip the dealer.

    There's a sucker born every minute, Trump doesn't need those "American Losers", as he's so fond of calling American Citizens.

    Trump has the GOP/Tea and they already cashed in on the Bush/Cheney con and they're ready for more blood money.

    Everyone knows you can only build so many gated communities on a Seven Trillion dollar war borrowed from the Chinese Government.

    Just once, I would like one of these moderators to fact check these liars right in the middle of the debate when they make one of their whoppers: "Obamacare is a job killer!" "Well, no Senator, we just had the best two years of private job growth since 1989-90."

    This debate had more decency. The CNN moderators actually prepared for more contentious candidates but were thankful it's more civil and thus more substantive debate.

    And the candidates appreciated that from the balanced moderators too since they were able to talk more about their campaign policies.

    At the end, it seems that helped everybody and all the candidates. (Of course, when it helps all candidates, that's good for the front-runners.)

    Don't know about all that, but I do prefer to have a military that is feared and a president that isn't a *ussy and afraid to use military force if needed and NOT make excuses to call something else other than what it really is.

    You got your arse spanked in two humiliations under the last clown fighting the good fight and he shuffled off into anonymity with a 22% approval rating spouting ungrammatical sentences in his defence.

    Obama speaks well, is smart (supposedly) the war of Iraq (post Bush) where Obama has sent soldiers to war....er, I mean, advise secretly has cost the tax payer already about $920 million and this from a man that with all of his intelligence (chuckle) can't do anything without his trusty teleprompter. First he draws a red line in the sand and gives Assad an ultimatum, then backs down, then let's Putin *itch slap him and then the guy after being warned of the rise of ISIS by the Pentagon, chose to do nothing for almost 4 years and kills every terrorist he can (not complaining about that, but every now and then, taking a prisoner to find out future details wouldn't hurt) but that's like pulling teeth from this guy and here we are now.

    No glory, no democracy. Just lies, cool footage for the deranged and sick and a filthy, failed bloodbath.

    But you libs feel nothing about the sectarian violence that caused the majority of deaths and you make a constant fuss about that, but when 4 Americans die on Obama's and Hillary's watch it's just a tragic situation that happened. Double-standards....yeah!

    Anyway, enough 'wussified' ideas ( nice word, Bass, but don't overdo it ). We want corpses, lots of corpses. Trump can deliver.

    Hey, Obama was the one that didn't know the difference between a corpse and the Marine "Corps." the anointed one with all the intelligence that could fit in a thimble. But you guys conveniently forgot about that, right. ROFL.

    Another article on Hate and Trump. I like how Kasich responded to a question that he would not take the bait.

    First, a moment for the memory of those who die 5 years ago on 3/11... may they all rest in peace.

    Primary analysis by me....

    Hillary let our boys die in Benghazi and will never get my vote. Her disregard for the law with the email server exposing classified information is a crime. She may indeed get an orange suit, but the accountability of government seems to be zero.

    Sanders brings out some real issues that need to be attended too. However, turning the government into a bunch of brigands robbing the easiest prey (middle class that is really suffering) is not the solution.

    Rubio, I love, and is a great speaker. Very talented. Just too young and inexperienced.

    Cruz, a constitutional scholar with great ideas. He could very well restore our republic to a republic. However, we need flexibility and not a Theocracy so that all people can live in peace according to their strongly held beliefs. Families are more than subjects of governments and they should be given the freedom to make choices for their own well being.

    Kasich has done it all and is very capable. He would make a fine president with a great tone. He just doesn't get the votes.

    Why Trump? "It is the economy stupid," as someone said.

    At the low end, the uncontrolled migration is causing a lot of burdens for local and state governments. Jobs are not as plentiful as people think, but I cannot blame families trying to better themselves. It might be better to look at the reasons people are being forced to leave for a better life. Why is that war in Syria (Pipeline)? Why is Latin America suffering so (mineral rights forcing natives off their lands)? The real powers in the world seem to care less. But that is another scary story for us all.

    At the high end American workers are being replaced by H1-B foreign workers. Our college educated children, many with debts, are being displaced. America trains many STEM workers who cannot find jobs. Even those who have jobs are being forced to train H1-B foreigners to replace them. This is devastating to many American families.

    The horrors of ISIS and Boko Haram have many concerned... They have a value system that is quite different from our own. Treatment of LBGT people, Women, and non-believers is appalling. We do not understand and are afraid. It really does need to be looked at closely. However, innocent families caught up in this need our help.

    Most people just want to get on with life, raising their children and working with others.

    Trump boldly, and perhaps as a fool, speaks out with hyperbole. Americans are sick of politicians that just give lip service to the American people disregarding their wishes once elected. Actually we need to negotiate solutions. Trump does offer "The Art of the Deal". Here is his strength. A middle road must be found where everyone can live in real peace, not forced silence.

    Everything is negotiable for Trump. His rhetoric is just that, rhetoric. It is negotiable.

    One caveat that concerns us all is our constitution and bill of rights. The American presidency needs to be contained by the separation of powers. The overlap we see is disconcerting. The structure of the American system was setup to stop a tyrant and to give people a voice.

    Our system of government should be enforced or we all lose. No one is above the law. To allow the abuse power because it is "our liar" sets the stage for the next one. Let us pray that we never allow that to happen.

    "Don't know about all that, but I do prefer to have a military that is feared and a president that isn't a *ussy and afraid to use military"

    Sending your military on another unwinnable war does not make it feared. Yet another spanking doesn't increase respect for it nor fear of it. It does the opposite. Given it's track record, if your military was a racehorse, it would be in the glue factory.

    The perverted idea that a willingness to throw more lives away in a hellhole equals patriotism or strength is the most revolting idea among many on the right. Trump, now not the leader of lunatics for you, is appealing to the kind of boneheaded patriotism drummed out which ends in catastrophe and gets people killed in failure.

    So, everyone calmed down, and what do we learn?

    I learned that Trump knows nothing about government and public affairs, and cares even less.

    In most cases, his answer to everything is that every deal the United States government has ever made on anything is a disaster, and he would make much better ones. He doesn't say what was wrong with the old ones, or how he would make better ones, and how they would be better.

    Trump's got nothing, because of course there is nothing; it's just an empty boast. When he tries to talk about specifics, he gets lost, changes the subject -- usually to himself -- or just flat out lies.

    Conclusion: Palin was Trump 1.0. No responsible person could vote for the man.

    Worked for Russia until Obama took office and I think we all know that Trump has that don't **** with me attitude, which I do like VERY much.

    Yet another spanking doesn't increase respect for it nor fear of it. It does the opposite. Given it's track record, if your military was a racehorse, it would be in the glue factory.

    Got rid of Hitler, made Japan surrender, made Saddam run and hide in a Spider hole, made Gaddafi turn over his nuclear program, gave a lot of pause to Russia. So I think looking back at history, the odds were pretty good mostly.

    The perverted idea that a willingness to throw more lives away in a hellhole equals patriotism or strength is the most revolting idea among many on the right.

    That's your personal opinion. I feel the exact opposite.

    Trump, now not the leader of lunatics for you, is appealing to the kind of boneheaded patriotism drummed out which ends in catastrophe and gets people killed in failure.

    Yeah and that's exactly how I felt for 8 years with a wussified and spineless, president that will not define, call out radical terrorism for what it is and will do anything to appease others, but not do the right thing. I and millions of Americans are tired of this knuckleheads foreign policy, bothers me so much, even IF Hillary were to become president, I don't think even she would be that weak to capitulate like this clown.

    Filthy.

    Even filthier when you consider that the people who preach for war the most are the ones who won't actually have to die in it.

    If you're too old or for some other valid reason you can't go, fine, other than that, I think most people would go. We have an all voluntary military, doesn't seem like we can't get recruits.

    It's sick that they would consider sending other people to die,

    I think it's sick to when a person wouldn't go and fight for his country and or have a leader that prefers to take it up the rear and allow himself to be pushed around and taken advantage of in any situation, even if we are attacked and is unwilling to strike back. I think it's VERY sick as well as disgusting and humiliating!

    just so their president doesn't look like a *ussy.

    Liberals believe in turning the other cheek and taking it up... But the majority don't believe in God and yet, some the religious conservatives that do believe in God are willing to use US military might to fight any adversary. Interesting.

    Which in itself is a ridiculous idea - the only people who think that are those who would send others to die for their cause.

    That's your opinion. You can believe that, I believe quite the opposite.

    Yep. War is for the weak.

    A weak and spineless leader is bad for the nation. 8 years of that is enough!

    learned that Trump knows nothing about government and public affairs, and cares even less.

    Obama knew a lot (supposedly) but never once recognized his own faults and failures as we saw yesterday once again in that pathetic speech with the Canadian PM. He also couldn't care less about the country and ONLY cares about the next election has always been like that.

    In most cases, his answer to everything is that every deal the United States government has ever made on anything is a disaster, and he would make much better ones. He doesn't say what was wrong with the old ones, or how he would make better ones, and how they would be better.

    Yes, I do think in many areas he lacks specifics to a degree, but again and I know you libs hate to look in the mirror, but Obama with all of his wit and knowledge (debatable) has put more people out of work, median income down, the middle class is almost dead, the entitlement culture is skyrocketed, millions of people on food stamps, so many companies are leaving the US at the staggering corporate tax level of 40% who'd in their right mind would ever want to do business in the US. Obama's continued war on coal, oil, putting millions out of work, his reverse racists policies towards many Whites in rural areas has gotten a lot of people more than annoyed and they're tired, even many unions are siding with Trump, more Blacks are leaning his way.

    Trump's got nothing,

    Whatever, unlike Obama, HE did create jobs, there is no disputing that, regardless of how you look at the man, take the emotion out of your argument for a moment.

    because of course there is nothing; it's just an empty boast.

    You don't become a Billionaire if you have nothing.

    When he tries to talk about specifics, he gets lost, changes the subject -- usually to himself -- or just flat out lies.

    So what do Hillary and Obama do???? ROFL

    Conclusion: Palin was Trump 1.0. No responsible person could vote for the man.

    Hmmm...Palin governed a State, Trump crated jobs and built things around the world. Obama dirty Chicago get politics, didn't create anything, except more debt, more racial division. Hillary.....jeez, we can go back 30 years on the dirt and headaches of HRC. You have to be a complete loon to even want to vote for a lying, devious woman like that. Typical libs!

    @bass Palin governed a State,

    And then ditched her responsibilities. She's a coward who ran away to become a reality TV star like Trump.

    Trump crated jobs and built things around the world.

    He also hired illegal immigrants for some of the jobs, bankrupted several of his businesses, including a casino (how is that possible?), and is being sued by people he used bait and switch and other shady practices on. Around the world.

    You don't become a Billionaire if you have nothing.

    Trump won't release financial info so no one knows what he's worth. He became a rich man by inheriting millions.

    I do think in many areas he lacks specifics to a degree

    Because he has no specifics to offer. Name one beyond 'build a wall'.

    I think it's sick to when a person wouldn't go and fight for his country

    What's your excuse? There's room in war zones for people of all ages, regardless of disabilities.

    Given that the US has not come out ahead in any military conflict (except possibly Panama and Grenada) post WW2, it's baffling why some US American want to continue invading sovereign nations knowing that even more of their countrymen will be killed or injured in a losing cause. Those who want war, sign up, go fight it yourself. Don't expect other people's sons and daughters to do the fighting for you.

    And then ditched her responsibilities. She's a coward who ran away to become a reality TV star like Trump.

    She sure did. But she governed a state well for her time while in office, cut spending by 33%, did propose a $2.6 billion investment in the education fund, she cut spending, rejected most of Obama's stimulus money back in 2007, stopped the bridge to nowhere and wanted the funds to be redirected to the bridge collapse that happened in 2007 back in Minnesota, reduced earmarks by 80% and her high point, she was at 93% approval rating. So yes, she did accomplish a lot, despite her running away from office early and made more money in the private sector, I would say, that's pretty impressive.

    He also hired illegal immigrants for some of the jobs,

    Obama wants to give 5 million ILLEGALS amnesty and you complain about Trump maybe unknowingly hiring illegals?

    bankrupted several of his businesses, including a casino (how is that possible?), and is being sued by people he used bait and switch and other shady practices on. Around the world.

    Compared to Obama's and Hillary's record on fraud, lies, deception and Obama putting the country in an almost and slow 3rd world status with growing entitlements, I mean, it's much easier to make people more dependent than to create high wage jobs, I get it.

    Trump won't release financial info so no one knows what he's worth. He became a rich man by inheriting millions.

    I agree, he should as well as Hillary won't release her transcripts from her many paid speeches and why is it ok for her to get $675.000? For what????

    Because he has no specifics to offer. Name one beyond 'build a wall'.

    Hey, at least he wants to build it seriously and unlike the other two useless parties, they know he seriously means it and good on him and that alone is a huge selling point!

    What's your excuse?

    I have no excuse and don't need one. I did serve my country and still do. You don't know anything about me.

    There's room in war zones for people of all ages, regardless of disabilities.

    If they physically, mentally and emotionally can and depending on many factors.

    Given that the US has not come out ahead in any military conflict (except possibly Panama and Grenada) post WW2,

    Japan and Germany are doing fine and are great examples of the outcome of the war and what can prosper from the ashes, something good, positive and peaceful. Bankrupted the Soviet Union, South Korea has a bustling economy, Israel flourishes. I would say those are pretty good accomplishments overall speaking.

    it's baffling why some US American want to continue invading sovereign nations knowing that even more of their countrymen will be killed or injured in a losing cause.

    No one wants to invade anything, this is the typical lefts narrative that some Americans want to plunder other countries like pirates because it's fun and there is nothing else to do. Absurd. I believe in a very strong and powerful military and that military should be used to protect our nation as well as our allies.

    Those who want war, sign up, go fight it yourself.

    If it comes to that, you bet.

    Don't expect other people's sons and daughters to do the fighting for you.

    That's why the US has an all voluntary military.

    No mention of the protesters getting beat up at his rallies by supporters and hired hands?

    Nothing wrong with protesting, but upstaging an event and cutting and interrupting someone while they are speaking like the BLM when they did that to Sanders or even what happened at the Trump rallies is despicable!

    Maybe at this juncture America needs an omnipotent grand ruler. I nominate Q, ha ha
